About Denise
I'€ve always had a love for music. When I was 8 years old, I taught myself how to read music before my first piano lesson because I was so excited to learn. I continued taking piano lessons throughout my school days and became involved in choir in high school.

When I began college I decided to study business. I auditioned for choir and realized that my dream was to become a music educator. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I studied piano, voice, clarinet, and music education. I had a lot of experience playing the piano and singing that I decided to learn the clarinet and join the concert band so I could have band experience. I was also involved in hand bell choir and continued to perform with the choir after I graduated. After graduating, I taught piano at various private eleme
ntary schools throughout San Diego. I also had the wonderful experience of being the pianist and vocal soloist at my church. I am a substitute teacher and have the opportunity to work with students from preschool to high school and am able to use my knowledge of each age group and school curriculum in teaching music.

"Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance" - Samuel Johnson

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are tailored to each individual student'€s needs. I think everyone is special and has their own unique way of learning and customized lessons should reflect that. I believe that music theory is important and I include that in lessons. For piano lessons I mainly use Alfred'€s piano books. In each lesson I will demonstrate the necessary skills in order for the students to feel comfortable in taking the music home to practice. For voice lessons I include vocalizations, vocal technique, and song study.

I want students to have fun with music. I am very patient and I think it'€s important to encourage and praise students. I hope to instill the desire to learn in each student.

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

I’m a beginner so Denise gave me a cd to practice my breathing and warm ups even when I’m not with her. THis was my first voice lesson so I don’t have much to compare her too but in my opinion she’s was very professional. I’ll deffinetly be going back to her In the future.

Isaac is an excellent teacher and is highly recommended. His method is not centered on drills, music reading or repetition, but rather on getting an understanding of how the notes, chords work together. In so doing, the student gets a great understanding of theory and it opens the door to improvisation. In addition he's very patient with folks such as myself who don't come to class with a deep understanding of music theory.

About Leanna
Leanna is available for at-home and online lessons and loves to teach students of all ages.

She likes to tailor each lesson to the student's various interests in music.

Leanna grew up in a learning environment, as both her parents are teachers. Her mother teaches music in her hometown, so Leanna had the fortune of observing and listening to countless private lessons in her home.

If you do not see an available time on her schedule that works for you, please feel free to contact her with the time that you prefer!

Leanna received her Master's Degree in Flute Perfo
rmance from Northwestern University where she taught the non-major flute students and is currently pursuing a Performer's Certificate at Lynn Conservatory in Boca Raton, FL. Leanna is excited to meet new students and help them create a plan for their success!

I try to get a lesson from Leanna whenever she is in my area. I am an adult who has returned to playing after many years. She has been helping me with techniques to improve vibrato, intonation, etc. She is very good working on the mechanics to improve my sound. Leanna is very good at giving specific things to try and is always positive and encouraging.

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

About Nicholas
I started to play piano by ear at the age of 5, then took piano lessons until college, where I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Piano Performance. I have always played the classics, Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven amongst others, but I learned to make $ playing popular music, and my first job as a piano player and singer in a very popular steakhouse, 4 nights a week for nearly 4 years, paid my way through college.

I also accompanied many professional singers including weddings and social events, and continued to play in nightclubs and lounges in Fort Lauderdale and Chicago for many years after college. I started teaching in high school, specializing in beginners and teaching students music theory, and how to play by ear as well as read music. I recently moved to the Palm Springs area, and would like to s
hare my talents with eager students of all ages, who want to learn to play the music they love!

About Daniel
I’ve studied with some of the most legendary teachers of our time. Aaron Rosand, Haim Taub, Pierre Amoyal and Donald Wallerstein to name a few. As well as studying music theory and history in one of the most prominent schools in the world.
I’ve founded and conduct my own symphony orchestra, NewOrch, and I will always provide tickets to my students because I believe that attending concerts is a necessary part of the education.
We will go over the rich history of classical music and try to find a way to make it a personal experience that you can come back to for many years to come.
Looking forward to meeting you!
